Wheat Dosa / Wheat Dosa using Urad Dhal

Wheat Dosa is popular for its instant preparedness! However, adding urad dhal and allowing it to ferment increases its texture and making it much more tasty.

Yield - 15 - 17  Dosa's approximately


Wheat flour – 2 cup
Urad dhal – ½ cup
Fenugreek seeds – ½ tsp
Salt – to taste


Wash and soak urad dhal & fenugreek seeds in water for an hour.

Grind both the ingredients together to fine paste adding little water.  Transfer it to a separate container.

Add wheat flour and salt in urad dhal mixture and mix well .

The consistency should be like dosa batter; so add water if required.  Avoid any lumps.

Allow to ferment for nearly 8 to 10 hours or overnight.

Mix the batter well before preparing dosas.

Heat the dosa pan; pour a ladle full of batter and spread it in circular motion from inside. 

Drizzle some oil over the dosa, close with the lid and allow it to cook or flip it and cook on both sides (in medium flame).

Remove dosa from the pan and serve hot with any spicy chutney. Check Chutney Varieties for accompaniments.
